Want to stop moisture damage in your container? Buy Absorpoles

Containers left locked for prolonged periods can sometimes be subject to condensation, which in turn can damage your goods and belongings.

While you can minimise condensation by ensuring that all goods stored are dry, and by regularly opening container doors, it’s also worth using our Absorpoles product, which can help to reduce problems caused by condensation.

What are Absorpoles?

Absorpole is based on the proven ability of calcium chloride to aggressively remove moisture from the air. It is designed to stop moisture damage from condensation in shipping containers or storage containers.

It is easy to use and is designed to hang within the corrugated recess of the container wall. Its flush fitting means minimal space is occupied and accidental damage from forklifts during stuffing and un-stuffing is avoided.

How do the Absorpole products work?

Absorpole is activated once it is pulled out of its container. The calcium chloride, at the top of the pole, immediately starts to absorb moisture from the surrounding air. The desiccant material gradually dissolves into brine which is captured in a collector. Once captured, the moisture will not re-evaporate into the air.


The absorption characteristics of calcium chloride provide Absorpole with a superior absorption capacity, even at low humidity levels, and the ability to effectively protect cargo throughout the entire voyage, or for several months when used in static containers.
